Space tourism market faces realities

Galactic Suite's plans depend on the development of a reliable, privately funded system to deliver payloads and people to orbit - and space industry observers say it would take hundreds of millions of dollars and years of work to perfect such a system.

Even if Galactic Suite follows through on its plan, it won't be the only venture aiming to put hotels in orbit: Nevada-based Bigelow Aerospace has already launched two inflatable prototypes for a privately built space station, and is planning to send up its first habitable module by 2012. California-based Space Island Group also has been working on a space hotel concept, but that venture has not announced a launch timetable.
